Technology Forum with Bright Computing: Modernizing High Performance Computing Systems with Auto-Scaler Technology to Improve Performance and Throughput

October 7, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


Join us to learn how Bright Computing has developed a new “auto scaling” technology for HPC clusters that can continuously optimize the cluster configuration to match the workload. Auto-scaler works with mixed batch-scheduled and Kubernetes clusters and resizes the clusters by dynamically reassigning servers between the two, based on workload and configured policies. The talk will explain how this technology brings a new level of utility and functionality to HPC systems. Bright’s technology is being deployed on SDSC’s latest supercomputer, the ‘Expanse’ system.

Robert Stober is the Product Manager for Bright Computing. From his home office in beautiful Alaska, Robert receives product enhancement requests from customers and creates solutions to the challenges the scientific computing industry is facing today.
Robert specializes in planning and implementing High Performance Computing clusters and has broad experience integrating applications and workload management systems. Since joining Bright, Robert has been involved with extending Bright Cluster Manager beyond traditional HPC with Bright Auto Scaler and Bright Edge.
Prior to joining Bright, Robert was a senior solutions architect at Platform Computing for more than 10 years. He was responsible for the design and implementation of computing grids for customers in the electronics, aerospace, life sciences, and government sectors.
